        A humorous selection which can be worked into a recital. Now necessarily kept for Encores.

        There is a variety of lyrical melody with witty text.

        Each song is a great opportunity for a character actress or singer to engage the audience.

        Music for big/bold personalities
        No real bad points

        The material is excellent for performing in an informal concert. Witty and musically clever.
        Book quality is high.

        This collections of song is ideal for the talented amateur. They're a lot of fun and, although most of us cannot aspire to perform them with the panache of Sarah Walker, most people would enjoy learning them and singing them.

        An excellent collection of songs, not only to be used as encores; a good mix of comedy and sentimental songs, allowing for topical references. Great price, too.

        I'm very pleased with this slim songbook. I bought it just because I needed the full lyric of one song, but every mezzo with a sense of humour I know has insisted on borrowing it. Just a word of warning - the piano arrangements by Roger Vignoles are superb, but don't expect a casual pianist to sight-read them.

        I expected to see the songs that are on the cd with the same picture on the front. There are some but certainly not all of them. Still good value.

        bon recueil de divertissement. Drôle et original.

        This music is rare and amazing!! When I listened to the recording, I was on the floor with laughter. I knew that I had to perform these pieces. I would highly recommend them to anyone, even non-classical music lovers.
